How's that workin' for ya there Brian France? Maybe you can suck up to toyota, or even nissan and honda to support your once-proud franchise. Jackass.

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."

its simple..its not racing. and I am fine iwth that.hey if that idiot wanted Toyota in NASCAR only for one reason well he got it.
The min. Toyota got serious in NASCAR with the truck series. I said there is the end of NASCAR..
I mean what is the point of having all these car companies in it if they can not use bodies that are thier cars shape and engines to fit them?

I say let NASCAR die with toyotas running around the track..see how many fans like seeing Jr. in a Camry..
